We are excited to announce the acquisition of one of Captain Morgan's females from Randy & Barb Coleman at Wings & a Prayer Alpacas! Kahlua is everything we'd hoped for when we purchased her! She's a gorgeous red-brown and has maintained her luster and handle that helped her catch the judge's eye early on. And she just gave birth on September 15, 2017 to a little girl that is a true mini-me, we named her Rachel in honor of our daughter's birthday!
She produced 4 offspring for her previous owners before we acquired her. Her most recent offspring, Commandor's Fly Girl (beige) has proven herself in the showring, too. With a 1st at The Futurity as a shorn yearling and a 1st at CABA Classic and a 3rd at Nationals as a juvenile, she is a wonderful addition to the breeding program here at Sandollar Alpacas!
Kahlua has proven to be a very nurturing mom to her offspring according to Barb. She delivers trouble-free and has plenty of milk for consistant weight gains on her cria. While carrying Fly Girl, Kahlua was attacked by a large bobcat. She suffered multiple claw injuries to her hips and a large, bite in the middle of her back. She recovered wonderfully and, go figure, she even held her pregnancy! Today she still carries a bare spot on her body as a reminder of the injury.
AND we are so excited about the breeding of Kahlua to WAP Commander's Argo. Argo wowed the judges in all the big shows he was shown in during 2016 including AOBA, Futurity, GWAS, and CABA Classic. With six 1sts, 2 color championships and 1 reserve championship, he has proven himself worthy of a place on Wings & a Prayer's herdsire row!
A gorgeous female arrived on our daughter's birthday, 09/15/2017, a darling and robust dark brown female, just like mom, that we have named Lady Rachel. Watch for her in the show ring!
